It used to be that Yankees games were the hottest ticket in the Bronx, but Hard Rock Café Yankee Stadium has upped the neighborhood ante on entertainment. Serious sports fanatics can arrive early and pre-game at the fully stocked bar before heading across the street to catch New York’s favorite boys in action. And while the best seats may be at the stadium, non-ticket holders can still feel close to the action thanks to more than a dozen flat-screen HDTVs.
True to Hard Rock form, the halls of this classic American restaurant are lined with memorabilia from some of New York’s favorite artists, making it the perfect place to experience art, culture, history and sports in the Big Apple.
Travelers can reach the Hard Rock Café by taking the 4 train to Yankee Stadium. The restaurant is located at Gate 6 on the corner of East 161st Street and River Avenue in the Bronx. Hours depend on game day schedules, so check the restaurant website before making plans.
